The Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Alberta offers degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate level in Chinese and Japanese language, linguistics, and literature. As the only university department between Toronto and Vancouver devoted solely to the study of East Asia, we provide our students with a valuable opportunity to build a solid foundation for a career involving this exciting and economically vigorous part of the world.
Courses on East Asia have been offered regularly at the University of Alberta since 1961, making our programme one of the oldest in Western Canada. East-Asia-related courses at the University of Alberta were originally offered within the Department of History and Classics, but in response to the increasing demand for courses on East Asia an independent Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures was formed in 1981. Renamed the Department of East Asian Studies in 1994 to reflect the expanded range of topics covered in its courses, the department has continued to grow steadily and now boasts record enrolments in its language and culture courses.

We are pleased to inform you that the instructors of the Korean Language Program at the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Alberta cordially invite you to the Korean Teachers’ Conference on Nov. 22, 2013.
The purpose of this conference is to promote and share the department language instructors’ knowledge for teaching languages. The theme of this conference is ‘Teaching Language Curriculum and Pedagogy,’ and we have 6 faculty staff in the Department of East Asian Studies to present some interesting topics on language teaching and pedagogy in the conference. We believe that this conference will be a great place for all the participants from Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language programs to share and exchange their thoughts and ideas on their teaching experiences.
All instructors and graduate students who are interested in teaching languages in the Department of East Asian Studies are welcome to the conference. Some snacks and beverages will be provided during the conference.
